Juan Aguilera Nuñez (Madrid, 13th September 1985) had been at the youth ranks of Real Madrid and Getafe before arriving at Real Murcia's B team in 2008. Last season he made a few appearances, impressed, but strangely didn't make the first team often, which was a shame considering the disaster the season was. I'm not saying we would have stayed in segunda....but it couldn't have been any worse than those that failed and have now gone from the club.
This season however, he has been a star. He is everywhere, omnipresent. Cool on the ball, good passer, great tackler (his success rate must be very high indeed), dribbles well despite his height - indeed he looks a little ungainly, organizes the team and sets a level of workrate that is an example to others. Must be being followed by teams in higher divisions.
His performance yesterday was nigh on miraculous, considering he was stretching every time there was a break and was clearly uncomfortable. Outstanding....really outstanding.
